Built in 1962, the Beverly Hills home features a covered bridge that spans a central pool.

Sliding glass doors allow both sides of the bridge to be closed off as needed.

Harold “Hal” Levitt is perhaps best remembered for designing homes for some of Hollywood’s biggest stars—from Olivia Newton John and Burt Lancaster to Dean Martin and Debbie Reynolds.

Even today, celebrities flock to his creations—although they’ll need deep pockets to snag the latest Levitt-designed property to hit the market. Known as the Holt House, the Beverly Hills compound is often regarded as one of the architect’s masterpieces—and the current owners are seeking an A-list price of $26 million.

Originally completed by architect Hal Levitt in 1962, the Holt House is sited on a lush lot in Beverly Hills, California. The U-shaped floor plan wraps around a central outdoor area, and the two sides are connected by a bridge-like hallway that spans the pool.
